I used to, but not any more. I know there are a couple of others so hopefully will be able to help with any queries you have.

Re: Does anyone keep Malawi Cichlids on here????? #5
Hi there,

I think i have seen you on the the cichlidforum.com. How are you?

I don't need any help just now i was just wanting to see if there was anyone on this forum that kept Malawi's,Tang's etc as i have never really came across any posts for them on here.

It would be intresting to here a bit about your tanks and fish just for conversations sake. How do you have a few fish that are unidentified? Are they maybe crossbreeds? Could you maybe post some pics of them?

I keep mainly Malawi's and some tang's in the same tank and everything seem to be going well so i think i have maybe just been lucky up until now lol.

Hope to here back from you soon
Ashley

I have got plenty of neolamprologus multifasciatus! Just thinking about moving to bigger tank and getting some cyprichromis leptosoma.
But don't have any malawis.

Re: Does anyone keep Malawi Cichlids on here????? #8
Yeah i will defiantly get some close ups of my fish i find it quite hard tho when they are swimming about like blazes lol they end up just being all blurry !!

I am going to look through my camera book to try and find out how you change the shutter speed on the camera so it can take a picture at a much faster speed which should hopefully cure the problem. The other problem i seem to have is when i go to take the photo the fish end up turning and then its just a pic of a bent up fish lol.

I noticed myself that a lot of people keep tangs more than Malawi's. I just ended up buying a few diffrent fish before i knew better but they are all getting along fine up until now anyway and i have had most of them for about a year now.

I have -

Ps.Demasoni
Ps.Elongatus Mpanga
Ps.Saulosi
Ps.Socolofi
Melanochromis Johanni
Iodotropheus Sprengerae (Rusty Cichlid)
Neolamprologus tretocephalus (5 Bar Tret)
Sp 44 Hap
Aulonocara Calico
Protomelas taeniolatus (Red Empress)
Labidochromis caeruleus (Yellow Labs)
C.Moori

And hopefully 2x Altolamprologus calvus (White Calvus) on Saturday.

This guy is my baby tho -

Re: Does anyone keep Malawi Cichlids on here????? #9
This one had to go back as he became hyper dominent in the tank and ended up being a oomplete nightmare, its a shame as he was going to look cracking when he was older.
